|Two 5" x 5" squares fused to the 2-Sided Fusible Flex Foam. Quilted in strait lines with no walking foot. I encountered no puckering and no shifting. This is a perfect product for mug rugs and pouches!|
I'm so excited to be a part of the blog tour for the Pellon Fusible Flex Foam release! I've been playing with samples of this stuff and it has a ton of great possibilities!
For those who are not familiar, Flex Foam is sew-in stabilizer typically used to add structure to bags and pouches. It's a great product, and now it's being expanded to include two fusible options, a one and a two sided fusible.
|Once fused the fabric is tight against the surface of the Flex Foam. The fabrics and foam stabilizer act as one!|
Last week I spent the afternoon playing around and testing the 1 Sided Fusible Flex Foam (FF78F1) and 2 Sided Fusible Flex Foam (FF79F2). It has been really great. The fusible is everything you would expect from Pellon. It's completely sew-able, not gummy. It fuses really quickly, and best of all, it keeps your fabrics nice and crisp!
I have big plans for some dense free motion quilting using the 2-Sided Fusible Flex Foam. I tested it out, it's perfect. Typically, thick stabilizers are prone to puckering or stretching when doing dense free motion work, but since the 2-Sided Fusible Flex Foam fuses down to both the top and backing fabric it is perfect for dense quilting! I'm looking forward to the intense texture on pouches and mug rugs!
Today's stop on the blog tour is my super sweet Zipper Pull. It's the icing on the cake for any fabulous zippered pouch! You can get the project download here.
